Spotlight on CMN Hospitals Sponsors
Local IHOP Restaurants Flip to Help Kids
IHOP restaurants know that the only thing better than delicious pancakes are free delicious pancakes for a good cause. On Jan. 25, the Rochester IHOP restaurants held a special promotion to provide free kids' meals when a $5 donation per kid was made to Golisano Children's Hospital at the University of Rochester Medical Center. Then, on Feb. 28, IHOP restaurants nationwide celebrated National Pancake Day with the Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Hospitals. The two Rochester-area IHOP restaurants raised more than $10,104 for the hospital this year, nearly tripling the funds raised last year. Golisano Children’s Hospital is grateful to these wonderfully ambitious supporters who go above and beyond to help our community’s children year after year.
Walmart and Sam’s Club Celebrate a Quarter Century of Caring
Walmart and Sam’s Club have been supporting CMN Hospitals for 25 years – raising more than $600 million for CMN Hospitals in the process. Over the years, our 13 local Walmart stores and two Sam’s Club stores have continued to amaze us with their tremendous support. Since 2011, these stores have raised an incredible $2.6 million for Golisano Children’s Hospital. Local Walmart and Sam’s Club stores are well into another great season of giving. Keep an eye out for an opportunity to purchase CMN Hospitals balloon icons in stores from May 1 to June 11.
